Flights from Split

The Split Airport is a public airport serving the city of Split, a commune in Croatia. It is located 24 kilometres from the city centre, on the west side of Kastela Bay, in the town of Kastela, extending into the adjacent town of Trogir. It is the second busiest airport in Croatia next to the Zagreb Airport, handling almost 1.8 million passengers in 2014. It is an important hub for Croatia Airlines, which offer flights to many European cities. 

Split Airport first opened its doors for commercial airline services in 1931 through a flight by Yugoslav airline, Aeroput. The said route linked Zagreb with Belgrade through Rijeka, Split, and Sarajevo, and was maintained until the start of the Second World War. The current airport was opened (reconstructed and re-opened) in 1966, with its apron having dimensions of only 200 x 112 metres and six parking positions with a planned capacity of 150,000 passengers. By 1967, the apron was extended, accommodating at least 10 aircraft at any given time. 

In the past few years, the summer peaks activity called for more expansions on the airport's capacity. The project was immediately kick-started in 2011, expanding the apron further to some 34,000 square metres. Between 2014 and 2016, the airport is set to construct and finish a new terminal to be connected to the old one, along with a new taxiway and a parallel runway. Currently, the airport works around its old terminal, which handles some 95% seasonal flights and seasonal charters. There is only one regular flight here. 


Where to go

Cultural, historical, colourful, and delightful, that is how people describe Croatia. Croatia is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, South-east Europe, and the Mediterranean. Its capital city is Zagreb, which forms one of the country's primary subdivisions, along with twenty more counties and a handful of islets scattered on its Adriatic Sea. Croatia stands as the 18th most popular tourism destination not only in Europe but across the world. It is an emerging economy with highly-stable industries and good profitability, especially in the industrial, agriculture, and tourism sectors. Within the nation, explore its major cities such as Dubrovnik, Zagreb, and Split, and see the sights, such as the Diocletian's palace, the City Walls and Forts, and the Church of St. Euphemia. 


From the Split Airport, there is only one regular flight. The said regular flight goes to Munich, the capital of the Bavarian region in Germany. Munich is a huge metro sitting on the banks of River Isar, to the north of the Bavarian Alps. It is the third largest city in Germany right after Berlin and Hamburg, and is home to a population of almost 1.5 million. The city is known for its Oktoberfest, an annual concert and street party during the month of October, and for its various parks and medieval castles. Apart from the regular flights to Munich, there are no other short haul flights from the Split Airport. Seasonal flights are available, though travellers should check the schedules of air transfer providers before planning their trips and their departures through the said airport.


As of the moment, there are no long haul flights from the airport. Travellers may check out other airports within Croatia, or fly through the regular service of Munich to the Munich Airport to check schedules there.
